Default What about this eix output?

$ eix -e netscape-flash
* net-www/netscape-flash
Available versions: [M]7.0.68 [M]9.0.48.0!m 9.0.48.0-r1!m [M]~9.0.60.0_beta082207!m ~9.0.60.0_beta100107!m 9.0.115.0!m {debug}
Homepage: http://www.adobe.com/

I don't understand what the appending flag "!m" means, can anyone tell me?

according to the man page, there is a mirror restriction on it.

I could be wrong, though.

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild N ] net-www/netscape-flash-9.0.115.0 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 new), Size of downloads: 0 kB

It doen't seem this package has been masked!

That not all the official gentoo download mirrors are used, but only the
one which is in the ebuild under SRC_URI!

Mirror Restriction means that the package is not available on the Gentoo
Mirrors and will be fetched from some other source. (Adobe Homepage...)

The availability is usually worse as Adobe chooses to change the
location of the files frequently in a random manner...

Thank you for all. Now I think I understand it completely.
The following in the ebuild file sets the mirror restriction:

RESTRICT="strip mirror"
